Penn State renovating locker room, showers from Jerry Sandusky scandal
Penn State is trying to rid itself of a reminder of the dark and disturbing Jerry Sandusky scandal. And, no, it’s not that stupid Joe Paterno statue.
According to a university spokesman on Friday, plans are in motion to renovate the locker room and showers of the Mildred and Louis Lasch Football Building — the scene of the crime where Sandusky sexually abused some of his victims.
The school says the plans were decided on in November after Sandusky was arrested and are a result of the his crimes. However, Penn State can’t proceed with the renovations until the entire legal process has run its course.
It’s probably not cost-effective, but is it completely out of the question to just tear the whole facility down? Penn State can do all it can to rid itself of the visual reminders of Sandusky’s despicable deeds, but, sadly, nobody is going to ever forget what took place inside that building’s walls.
